Paris My love- French Letters


I found these wonderful cake stands for a few dollars and the patterns are beautiful and all white! Now to bake some cupcakes or treats to adorn them. The roadsides are full of queen anne's lace or some people call them field carrots. I always pick some and admire their delicate flowers. And why not put them on a pedestal like they deserve.




Paris, my love. If I can't go to Paris I will bring Paris here. I stenciled this flower tin with white letters of a street address in Paris. They still look new but they will age outside on the porch quite fast in our hot humid weather. To add to the 3-d of the letters I went back on one side with gray paint and it gives them depth, the letters. Lavender plants set nicely in them and bring to mind Provence.
